Richard Beddingfield PhD

As an ORISE Postdoctoral Fellow with the National Energy Technology Lab, I am focusing on power electronics and high power, medium frequency magnetics. I worked with the FREEDM Center since 2011 as an undergraduate research scholar and continued into my Electric Power Systems Engineering Masters and PhD. During that time, I have built my passion for education and outreach through my involvement with the Student Leadership Council as well as various teaching opportunities opportunities through the University.

My Research Projects include:

  • High Power Magnetic Component Testbed for WBG Applications (Patent Pending)
  • High Power Magnetic Materials Characterization
  • High Step Voltage Ratio Transformers for Single Stage Converters
  • Innovative WBG Applications of Advanced Magnetic Materials
  • Medium Voltage DC Amplifier Testbed
  • Low Voltage Solid State Transformer
